    Hey guys, its time to call on all of your expertise again i'm afriad.

    Thing is my computer keeps turning itself off and its peeing me off so much so i thought F-it. I need a new PSU so why not fork out and get a new board, RAM, and CPU cooler.

    so suggestions?

    I need to keep it below £150 if possible - £100 be better but not sure what you can get for that.

    I am a UK as well so the mighty egg can't help me.

    Also seeing as i have the FX-62 i will try and get more out of it so OC friendly would be nice.


    Thankyou

    Was thinking of the following:

    Motherboard= £37
    PSU = £47
    RAM = £30

    Total = £114

    anybody got any points to consider?

    Gigabyte boards are pretty good boards. I've had 2 of them so far, both still work, never had a problem with any of them.

    I would get a 770 or 790FX chip depending on your budget and since your looking at a 690V I would get a Biostar, Gigabyte, ECS, DFI, ABIT AMD770 chipset board.

    i dont really know much about chipsets either - i am what you call a noob.

    but thank you for the ideas - although massively too expensive for me.

    The PSU looks fine, and deffinately get the RAM - lifetime warranty + its on a limited time offer.
    about the mobo - are you going for matx or do you want full size atx? if so, id surf on ebuyer some more - i got an ECS atx mobo at just under £30 and it hasnt skipped a beat. :cool:
